Listened to this one after a collegue mentioned that it was her family's favorite audio book (I had told her that we had just finished Holes). The audio book was well done and we had some good discussions about what it means to be a true friend. I th ...more

Listened to this book with the girls. The reader was awesome and the story was delightful (more magical than the last book we read that was supposed to be about magic). I loved watching "What's Up Doc" with Barbara Streisand, and this one kind of rem ...more

I loved Atonement, and so had high expectations for this book by the same author. I didn't love the characters or find the situation very persuasive.

For our mother/daughter book club. A cute (though not especially memorable) story about a girl finding her voice in a new school. It was a quick read, even for my girls.

Having recently read Unfinished Business, where that author makes many counterpoints to Sandberg's idea of "Leaning in," I did not expect to like this book, however I found it quite persuasive. Sandberg makes more interesting points and gives better ...more

The girls loved this magical story of a circus, but all I could think about was how much better The Night Circus was (and how long I need to wait to listen to that one with the girls). Ollie predicted the ending, while Gigi was surprised.

Listened to the audio book with the girls, and didn't love it as much as I had when I read the book on my own 10 years ago (I remember feeling the grit of the sand in Billie Jo's eyes from the dust storm and loving the free verse language). Perhaps i ...more

The audiobook reader was great. There were parts of this epic that I liked better than others, but by the end, I was ready for it to be over. Would make for interesting discussion in book club, but it is a little long to make a group read it.
